From Olympic Gold Medalist to Broadway to television analyst to President of the Women’s Sports Foundation, Dawes continues to inspire, motivate and lead. Dawes is best known for tremendous success as an Olympic gymnast, who competed in three Olympic Games, won four Olympic medals, and has a permanent place in the U.S. Olympic Committee Hall of Fame. Fans across the nation and around the world remember her as a member of the gold-medal winning “Magnificent Seven” at the 1996 Atlanta Games, where she also won a bronze medal as she wowed the crowd with her stunning performance in the floor exercise, becoming the first female African American gymnast to win an individual medal. She also earned a bronze medal with the U.S. team in the 1992 Barcelona Games and made a surprising comeback in the 2000 Sydney Games.
While continuing her commitment to helping today’s girls realize their full potential, Rawes teamed up with Girls Scouts of the USA to launch “Uniquely Me! The Girl Scout Self-Esteem Program.” Dawes shares her unique experiences as a top athlete, role model and a positive television personality to inspire and empower girls to feel good about themselves and fulfill their dreams.
This mother of four young kids continues to empower and inspire audiences through her transparent and emotionally captivating speeches. Her career may be best known for her Olympic feats; however, it’s her ability to make her journey to Olympic history relatable to many audiences.
